Naomi Bloch 12August 2013 Yiddish Book Center




Naomi Bloch, a Yiddish librarian and translator, was interviewed by Lynn Yanis on August 12, 2013 at the Yiddish Book Center.

Naomi was born in Cape Town, South Africa to Yiddish-speaking parents. Her father owned a factory and their home was a typically observant Jewish household built on the slope of Table Mountain. She describes speaking Yiddish among her family and Cape Town's Jewish community as a young girl. In high school, Naomi went to Talmud Torah five times a week and was a part of Jewish youth groups.

She later went on to study Library Science and worked as a librarian in addition to being a housewife and mother. She would eventually move to Melbourne, Australia, where she continues to work in university libraries as well as Kadimah, a library dedicated to Yiddish works.
